The TMJ is a complex joint system that acts as a hinge between your upper and lower jaws. If you experience pain of difficulty moving your jaw, you may be suffering from TMJ disorder. At Finesse Dental Care, our TMJ dentist 91361 can treat this condition with a customized night guard. Our goal is to provide much needed relief from TMJ disorder, improving your health and sense of wellbeing.
Every time you swallow, yawn, speak or chew, your TMJ are hard at work. If you notice a clicking or popping sound when you move your jaw, if your jaw locks or is difficult to move or if you have facial pain around your ears and mouth, be sure to discuss these symptoms with our TMJ dentist 91361. As a first step in care we’ll evaluate your symptoms, discuss with you your dental and medical history and perform a comprehensive examination to accurately diagnose TMJ disorder. A number of factors can contribute to this condition, including arthritis, misalignments of the teeth and bite, injuries and bruxism. Bruxism refers to a nightly teeth-grinding habit, which places excess strain on the joints and muscles in the jaw. To prevent bruxism and alleviate TMJ disorder, our dentist can provide a customized night guard. A night guard is worn much like a retainer, fitting over your top and bottom teeth to keep them slightly separated while you sleep. We’ll design your night guard to fit comfortably and precisely and will take the time to teach you how to properly wear and care for it.
